Academic Honors Breakfast
Five New Riegel students were honored at the Academic Honors Breakfast Friday, May 6, at Tiffin University. This breakfast celebrates the top ten percent of senior classes from area high schools. Congratulations to Aubrey, Jacob, Jojo, Jessica and Will.

Student Handbook
This year we have two proposed changes being suggested for the 2022-2023 student handbook. The first is for the recent change in the way CCP course grades are weighted (added to page 15). The second is a minor change to dress code item #3 (hoods added) (added to page 53).

Weighted Grades for CCP Courses (Class of 2025 and beyond)
1. CCP courses taken online, on-campus or at New Riegel will be scored on a weighted 5-point scale. This means that a grade of an A in one of these courses would earn the student a 5 when calculating their GPA as opposed to a 4 in an unweighted system.
2. Students who elect to take a CCP course for high school credit only will not receive a weighted score and will receive a 4 for a grade of an A.
3. Enrolling in and completing CCP courses allows students (Class of 2025 and beyond) to earn above a 4.0 GPA assuming that they earn an A in one or more CCP courses.

SBC Track Championship Prelims are scheduled for May 10, at 4:00 pm at Lakota and the District meet is scheduled for May 21.  
Softball sectionals are scheduled to begin for the Lady Blue Jackets at home on May 12 at 5:00 pm.
Baseball sectionals are scheduled to begin for the Blue Jackets May 17 at 5:00 pm.
